i’ve been a lurker for awhile and really enjoy the form. finally have a question.
recently got a new hdtv (panasonic td-p50st60) that does not have a headphone jack, only optical digital out. i’m looking for a solution so i can use my headphones. i don’t a receiver because i don’t have the room.
from looking around, it seems like i need a headphone amp with a toslink in and headphone jack out. i’ll be using it to primarily listen to movies. while i’m at it, it would be great if it had usb in as well so i could use it with my computer.
there’s a few threads on this but wanted to throw it out again to see if there was a newer product that was a good match for my needs.
i’d like to spend around 150 but if a bit more money gets a lot more quality, i’d consider it.
i have the following headphones:
Beyerdynamic DT-770Pro (32ohms)
Ultrason HFI 780
Ultrasone Pro 900
edit: it's the digital optical toslink, not the coaxial
